Example text

Many of the enzymes found in serum are known to rise in CSF under conditions of disease, usually in relation to a rise in the CSF protein. None of the enzyme changes has proved to be a specific indicator of neurologic disease with the possible exception of lactic dehydrogenase, especially isoenzymes 4 and 5, which are derived from granulocytes and are elevated in bacterial meningitis but not in aseptic or viral meningitis. Lactic dehydrogenase is also elevated in cases of meningeal metastases, as is carcinoembryonic antigen; the latter, however, is not elevated in bacterial, viral, or fungal meningitis.

Also, normal patterns in the fetus, from the seventh month onward, have been established. Certain changes in these patterns, as described by StockardPope et al and by deWeerd, are clearly indicative of a developmental disorder or disease. if not, there is a risk that the leads are not properly connected to the machine. Acute intoxication with high levels of drugs such as barbiturates can transiently produce this sort of isoelectric EEG (Fig. 2-4I). In the absence of nervous system depressants or extreme degrees of hypothermia, a record that is “flat” (<2 μV except for artifacts) over all parts of the head is almost always a result of profound cerebral hypoxia or ischemia or of trauma and raised intracranial pressure.

With current refinements of radiologic technique that use digital computer processing of radiologic data to produce images of the major cervical and intracranial arteries, the vessels can be visualized with relatively small amounts of dye that are introduced through smaller catheters than those used previously. Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomographic Angiography These are noninvasive techniques for visualizing the main intracranial arteries. They can reliably detect intracranial vascular lesions and extracranial carotid artery stenosis and are supplanting conventional angiography.
